'Grand Theft Auto IV' Does Not Have LAN Or Single-Screen Multiplayer Either (Public Service Announcement #2)

MTV Multiplayer writes: "Last week I re-reported my findings that "Grand Theft Auto IV" does not have split-screen multiplayer. While the game has more than a dozen multiplayer modes, those modes are made to be played over Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network.

Readers of my post asked if the game supported multi-system LAN play, or if it had any single-screen multiplayer gameplay that two friends could play with one system and one TV. The answer to each of those questions is "No." I've checked and double-checked this with Rockstar Games.

"GTA IV" multiplayer is all online or bust."

It would never work right,just like Gears of War's(Which I love to this date)split screen,there's just too much stuff on screen to the point where it gets irritating to see and do everything you would otherwise be able to pull off easily in a full screen.

Additionally,I think it would be more fun playing in full view of the city over PSN/Live,so long as the Lag is kept to a minimum,I'll be having a blast with this game Online.

That is devastatingly disappointing. :(

I was really looking forward to this with the wife :(

One of my favorite things about San Andreas was the two player, one of us in the back of a pickup lobbing grenades with the other driving. :(

Long live shared screen two player mode :(
